Me: Now, I know you are annoyed but…

Nell: Take that thing off me right now.

Me: It would look so much better on you if you smiled.

Nell: I don’t do smiling.

Me: If you did that perky ear thing then.

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: You know what I mean. The way your ears sort of go up and your face tilts.

Nell: It’s called listening. You should try it sometime.

Me: I thought it would suit you.

Nell: I told you.

Me: Yes, you did.

Nell: I am not that kind of dog. Leave the hippy stuff to the Afghans and fluffy animals like Poppy. Well, maybe not Poppy.

Me: Definitely not Poppy, although she would look sweet.

Nell: Don’t start.

Me: It was worth a try.

Nell: No, it was not worth a try. Annoying me and messing with my Sunday morning.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: If I am going to wear a hat it will be a Philip Treacy, or some other top designer.

Me: Yes.

Nell: It will be Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady.

Me: Goodness me.

Nell: Somebody get me a pot of Earl Grey. This has been a dreadful start to the day.

Me: Yes, sorry.
